NL 00760.100 Description of the Garnishment Notice System

The Garnishment notice system is a fully automated system that utilizes information from the Garnishment DB2 database as well as MBR data to provide notification to the beneficiary of any actions taken against benefit payments to pay the beneficiary’s obligation for child support, alimony, or court ordered victim restitution.

Notices are provided to both the beneficiary and the court or agency ordering the garnishment of benefit payments.

NOTE: The notices produced by the Garnishment notice system provide only information relevant to the Garnishment amounts being withheld from benefit payments. Actual ongoing payment amount information is provided to the beneficiary in notices produced by the Title II systems that withheld the garnishment from Title II benefits. In most instances the action is taken by T2 or MADCAP. However, language relevant to the payment and garnishment is present in all Title II systems that have the ability to change a beneficiary’s payment amount (i.e. ROAR, AJS-1, AJS-3, etc.).
